I treat depression, anxiety, relationships, eating disorders, parenting, children, adolescents, couples, individuals. Therapy is a process of self-discovery. The focus is on the uniqueness of you and the specific personal issues you present. My role is to help unlock whatever has prevented you from reaching personal goals and the quality of life you want. Together we will focus on your circumstances and see if there are different perspectives to problems or conflicts that you are experiencing.

While I recognize the importance of my extensive training and over 25 years of experience, I am equally aware of the overriding importance of having an understanding of your personal experience in a non-judgmental and supportive way.

I will encourage you, at your own pace, to understand how your past affects your present. Therapy is about YOU--your outlook and your goals. Not the goals OTHERS have for you. Let's find out together what has been getting in your way and preventing you from living your life as you imagined.
